Your stay at the very stylish Thompson Hotels just got a little more fashionable with Nanette Lepore, a favorite of Blair Waldorf, lending her über-feminine design expertise to new uniforms for Thompson staffers.
Lepore's sultry black cocktail dresses will outfit female staff members at three Thompson outdoor locations. Guests will see the body-skimming LBDs, which come with sexy side-splits, ruching and a bustier style top, on the rooftops of the Thompson Hotel on the Lower East Side in New York City and at Donovan House in D.C., as well as the celeb-studded Tropicana pool bar at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in L.A.
The collaboration with Lepore marks the first time Thompson has worked with a single designer on more than one property.
Other designers that have tried to upgrade hotel uniforms include Gwen Stefani for W Hotels, jewelry designer Ivanka Trump created uniforms for the Trump properties, and Amanda Ross, the new fashion director at W Hotels, says she wouldn't mind seeing uniforms created by big names like Derek Lam, Diane von Furstenberg, and Stella McCartney, among others.
